Allows an unlimited number of users to keep individual encrypted lists of their passwords without having to go through complicated procedures
Passwords Max is an application which provides users with a secured environment for storing sensitive information, such as software passwords and PINs.
The interface of the tool is not particularly intuitive, and this may cause a harder time to first-time users in attempting to figure out Passwords Max’s features.
Filling a database with password information requires inputting a description, category, document details, name, email address and PIN. These fields are not shown to unauthorized users, since you can protect them with a password.
Password information can be sent to other applications or just stored in the database, as well as associated with a user name, printed or copied to the Clipboard. There are three viewing modes available for the list – Task, Tabbed and Category.
Other tools of Passwords Max let you generate a random password based on custom filters (e.g. password type and size, letter case), generate reports (e.g. standard, simplified, landscape), as well as change the interface font and language.
A bunch of settings may be configured from the Options screen. For instance, the program can show expired passwords or add a tray monitor to the startup, specify the default encryption type, create backups, specify default applications to launch documents with, as well as modify the default database file path.
The comprehensive program supports keyboard shortcuts and includes a help file. It has a good response time and uses a low amount of CPU and system memory. We have not come across any problems in our tests, since Passwords Max did not hang, crash or alert us of any errors. On the other hand, the GUI layout could had been more intuitive for less experienced users to easily get familiarized with Passwords Max’s features.
